Author Talk: Jeannine Ouellette, “The Part That Burns”

In her fiercely beautiful memoir—a Next Generation Independent Book Award finalist in Women’s Literature—Ouellette recollects fragments of her life and arranges them elliptically in order to see each piece as torn and whole, as something more than itself. This is a story about the tenacity of family roots, the formidable undertow of trauma, and the rebellious and persistent yearning of human beings for love from each other. Join Ouellette for a reading selected from her memoir.
